That both sides only exists to made damage control for the Xbox launch lineup disaster, Sony did their home work


People keep throwing up the Sony list like there's something inherently impressive about it or that it somehow speaks for itself. What exactly on this list is so impressive for launch day? The top two games are still older generation games. Ratchet and Clank is going to be good, but "Launch Window" is just a fancy way to say "not available day 1." Like I've been saying, the good stuff isn't until next year with God of War and Gran Turismo.

This time around both consoles are relying on previous generations to carry their launches. "Both sides" absolutely applies to launch. The face off is how well they both play your old content, which is ok, but seriously these launches are weak.

At least PS5 has new games and is trying to innovate on a hardware and UI level.
